Zappos was great when ordering this product - I had a few different types of gift cards and the person on the phone patiently helped me use all of them - awesome customer service. Red Wing Heritage Blacksmith Review - I'm a big Red Wing fan . I've had several different types of there boots (steel toes, ropers) - always had a great experience. These so far are great. As many others have suggested, order a full size down (from your dress shoe size - not your tennis shoe size), and do not fear, you will still have room. I've been wearing these 3 or 4 times a week and the leather is just started to break and feel comfy. Expect them to be stiff for at least a full month of heavy wear. I suggest getting Red Wing's Mink Oil (instead of their boot oil) as this will give them a nice slow boot patina. Overall, very pleased, looks great with jeans (especially some nice ones where you want to show off the selvedge line. :) Also great with khakis etc...

They arrived perfect and in amazing time. As predicted they run large so I'm glad I went to a Red Wing store and got sized. With the sizes from there the Rangers fit perfectly. A little FYI: They are very slick on ice. Here in MN we see a lot of that and it's something to think about. I might get a lugged sole replacement for the cork one day. Still a beautiful boot.

These are beautiful boots (I got the Bourbon Yuma). Well crafted and the attention to detail is phenomenal. Usually wear a 10.5/44 Euro and the 10 fits perfectly with some wiggle room for the toes (which is how they should fit per Red Wing). Can't wait to wear these for years to come. Highly recommend.

Best boots I have ever owned. They are extremely well made and after a week or so of wear, the leather conforms to your foot. Easy on and off. I measure a true 9.5, and the 9.5 in this boot was spot on. I've found the best fit for pull on boots have room in the toe box, slight heel slippage and are a tad snug around the top of the foot. Over time all of these things conform to your stride to create the perfect fit. Worth every penny.

Absolutely love these boots. Very solid feel, short break in period, rich leather and foot-hugging comfort. Plus, with my woodblock feet, the wide version allows me the space I need. I definitely recommend ordering a pair at one full size below your normal, and one half size below that (1.5 below normal) to see which fits better. I normally wear 9.5 or 10; on these I'm comfortable in an 8.5! The first three days were rough, and my ankles were worn a bit raw. Now, though, the boots hug my feet and feel great. I haven't put them through hell yet, but I'm going to be wearing them on an Alaska to Argentina motorcycle ride, so I'll perhaps be able to update this post later with regards to durability. I can say they seem to be well constructed with good, heavy stitching and a strong welt. I recommend these boots without reserve.

Best quality boots. Bought these for my husband as a Christmas present. He was looking for a solid yet stylish pair of brown boots. He is in love with these boots. These definitely run big so order down ma full size.

I bought these for my husband for Christmas. He absolutely loves them. They are beautiful in person. I chose this style because he wears a suit every day and I wanted something that is dressy enough for work. They look great. The fit was true to size and there was very little break in time.

Tese things are nice. Expensive but nice. The size was true to other work shoes so order half a size down to your Nikes if you are going to use an insole or a full size down without adding an insole. I think they run a little narrow so I bought an EE, time will tell if I made the right buy. I have had no break in period with mine. I put them on and went. I am a turf manager for an athletic facility so I am on my feet a lot but it is generally soft areas, not much hard concrete flooring all day. The wedge tracks almost no mud/dirt to the office or house since I have small children. There is not much arch support but I do not need much. I am using a very slim insole and the boots are tremendously comfortable. Zero blisters and no break-in but I have got tough feet compared to most and I am wearing thick over ankle socks until they soften some more. The leather has taken mink oil and polish nicely.

Awesome. Best customer service ever! Easiest company to do business with and returns/exchanges are handled better than any online company that ever purchased from. I tell everyone about Zappos.

Once again, I'm blown away by these Red Wings. I purchased a brown pair 5 years ago, and they still look almost brand new. My black boots of other manufacture wore out, so it was a no-brainer to upgrade to the Iron Ranger. I don't think I've ever come across an item that is so blatantly superior to other options. Build quality, styling, made in USA... even the laces are nicer than most. As indicated by others, they do run a bit large – and be sure you have ample time to break them in. I typically wear a 10 – these fit perfectly in a 9. You do want them a little bit tight and uncomfortable for the first wear or two – they'll break in like good pair of jeans.

These are wonderful boots. I normally wear a 10, but had to get a 9.5 in these. They become more and more comfortable as I wear them. They are very well made & seem to fit their description perfectly.

At first these boots are really hard and hurt my feet but I bought fit socks and smart wool in the thickest versions I could find. After I wore the thick socks with the boots for about three weeks they started to mold to my feet and now they feel more comfortable. But those three weeks were really hard on my feet. I wear 11 in Adidas and got 10.5 in these and with thick wool socks they fit great.

The boots themselves are nice however the size and shape of the boots are inconsistent. I bought a pair and I could visually see that the right boot was smaller than the left. Also the right boot want level and was twisting my foot inward. Zappos sent a second pair right away and I had to keep one shoe from each pair that best fit together. They are good boots but be careful because the quality is extremely inconsistent.

A mean pair of boots! Don't expect them to be soft, you have to tame them but I got no sores in the process, once they are folded to your feet they are quite confortable and they look very nice.

I give these 4.5 stars. These boots are beautiful and extremely well made. They are expensive but I think you actually get what you pay for with these. You can tell from 10 feet away that these are really nice shoes; they just look expensive and people notice. They require a lot of breaking in. They are extremely uncomfortable for the first week but improve drastically over time. They also wear in in a way that makes them look better with time, not worse. I attribute this to the thickness and quality of the leather. So why 4.5 stars instead of 5? These boots are constructed in a way that makes them very difficult to get on and off. This is done to make them waterproof. However, I noticed that after several consecutive days of rain, water soaked through the leather sole and my socks were getting moist. I think this is the nature of leather sole boots, but it's worth noting. Also, I don't think these ever get quite as comfortable as some other boots because the sole is hard leather and rubber and there is no insole. The leather sole molds to fit your foot over time and gets pretty comfortable but I wouldn't recommend these to someone who works on their feet all day due to a lack of padding. Overall, wonderful, beautiful boots that will look great for years. The highest quality build and materials I have found anywhere. Worth the high price for this level of quality, buy only if you are willing to suffer through a few weeks of break in time.

Beautiful boots, but fit WAY big. Meaning they are long. I would size down 1 full size at least when you order these.

Great boot, great look. Runs about 1 size big. Make sure to loosen the laces all the way for easy removal and putting the boot on or else it will be tough.

These are the best-looking shoes I've ever had. Haven't had them for long, but get a lot of compliments on them. But these are probably the least comfortable shoes I've ever worn. They flat out hurt. Blister city on the heels for the first few wears. I started getting some moleskin protection for the back of my foot and that helped, but they still hurt for another few wears. Then the rim of the shoe - at the top, where it is flush against your high ankle - started digging into the side of my ankle and hurting like a son of a gun. Didn't really figure out a way to protect against that. But after about 6 weeks (wearing 2-3 days per week), it seems to be getting comfortable and I didn't notice any discomfort the last time I wore them. I am very glad they're starting to get all right, because they are awesome shoes. Also, I got the size I usually wear (12) and it destroyed my heel very quickly. I had some heavy duty blisters after about 20 minutes of wearing. I exchanged them for 11.5s - much better fit, notwithstanding the breaking in period.

I wear other styles of Red Wings because of the diversity of sizes (I'm a wide foot). These boots although nice are not as comfortable as I would have expected from Red Wing. Also for a boot costing over 300.00 I would have expected some sort of foot bed. There was just a flat piece of leather with no arch support.

Ridiculously sturdy shoes. Look great, understated class. Feel like they'll last for 20 years. One thing I'd point out is there not really winter boots - the bottom of the soles are totally flat, as there really floor work boots. Hardly an issue, since I'm still wearing them all the time anyway. Don't balk at the price - think about the fact that you'll get many, many more years of use out of these shoes then you will their less expensive counterparts. The cost is not the design or the brand, it's the quality.
